by on January 22, 2017 in Studio News

Soundtrack Creation has had the pleasure of working on the remix E.P of the very popular song ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’ by Taco. “Puttin ‘On The Ritz” is the title of a US jazz standard published by Irving Berlin in 1929. The song was made famous by the 1930s film of the same name. Fred Astaire (1899 – 1987) recorded the title for the first time in 1930 and made the song 1946 in the film “Blue Skies” for Evergreen. In 1982, the Dutch singer Taco released “Puttin ‘On The Ritz” in an extravagant synthpop version, which was sold over one million copies in the USA alone and was ranked fourth in the Billboard Charts.

This E.P includes six different remixes of the much-loved song by some established and up-and-coming producers from around the world. Working closely with director Rainer Regatschnig Soundtrack Creation mastered this E.P to breathe new life into this classic which will bring this timeless classic to a new audience. A new video has been released for the ‘Jazzy Radio Mix’ remix and can be viewed here.
